Today some boy scouts received some special training on how to help at an accident scene.

Some volunteers were dressed up and acted like the injured passengers. The goal for the scouts was to figure out which passengers had the worst injuries so that they could help paramedics find them.

"A lot of times people come up on accidents and they don't know what they can do and may not be able to help people with injuries. They can sort things out so when people who do know what's going on and can help them, they know which ones are the most critical," said organizer Risa Zimmerman.

With the completion of the disaster drill the scouts now will receive an emergency preparedness badge.
